Looks like Bengal sultanate to me. I recommend sending a PM to "S. M. Iftekhar Alam" and "nnasir". They are both busy co-authoring a book, though.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

May well be a Gujarat SUltan coin. Bengal is not known to have issued copper.

Yes for Gujarat  :) Mahmud Shah I
with a 90 clockwise rotation the obverse gives "Mahmud Shah al sultan", Mahmud is  difficult to read in center just over "Sultan", the final "D" is at top,at left of "Shah".
this type seems to be absent in G&G catalogue ?
